Olivia Newton-John Reveals Breast Cancer Returned and Has Spread
Actress Olivia Newton-John is taking some time off for her health.
The star revealed in a statement on Facebook that some back pain that caused her to postpone the first half of her concert tour has “turned out to be breast cancer that has metastasized to the sacrum.”
Newton-John will undergo natural wellness therapies as well as a short course of photon radiation therapy.
She is canceling her June U.S. and Canadian tour dates, and “is confident she will be back later in the year, better than ever, to celebrate her shows.”
Olivia previously battled breast cancer in the 1990s and lost her sister Rona to brain cancer in 2013.
